A Día de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) event by Teatro de los Niños, the first Chicano theater group in the United States with children performers are performing in "Las Albondigas," a Mexican folk tale of the family. This show was held at Self-Help Graphics and Art at its old location on Brooklyn Avenue (street name changed to East Cesar E. Chavez Avenue) and Gage Avenue in East Los Angeles. In this photo are five performers on stage: three adults and and two teenage girls. One girl has white face paint with red lipstick. They are holding life size paper dolls and animals on a stick that have clothing adhered to them. Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin (photo donor) is wearing a green paper headress and is in the front left in the photo. They are all looking at someone in the audience. Off of the stage, to the left are: a teenage boy sitting behind a snare drum and two males holding their acoustic guitars on their laps. This image was provided by Vibiana Aparicio-Chamberlin for inclusion in the Foto East LA collection.
